The multitalented comedic actress was one of the most talked about breakout stars in 2017.

“I am so excited about this partnership with Colgate Total,” shared Yvonne. “A healthy smile has always been important to me.

I want to take that and make it bigger and better for 2018. So, not only do I need to be totally ready, I know that I must stay ready.”

With the upcoming taping of the highly anticipated third season of the hit cable show in which she co-stars, writing and executive producing her own sitcom, and her role in an upcoming comedy film set to be released in the fall, Orji knows she must be Totally Ready in 2018.

As part of this new campaign, Orji will be sharing her “Totally Ready” moments on Instagram and will be featured in an upcoming “Totally Ready” video that will be featured on Essence.com, one of the leading online destinations for African American women.

“Colgate is thrilled to partner with this multitalented star as we witness her amazing journey,” said Carla Kelly, General Manager, Multicultural Marketing, Colgate-Palmolive.

Colgate Total toothpaste is clinically proven to help prevent or reverse gingivitis, the most common form of gum disease.

Dave Chappelle Accurately Jokes About Trump Voters In Clip From New “Equanimity” Standup Special

Dave Chappelle Equanimity
Netflix

A new clip has arrived from Dave Chappelle’s forthcoming Netflix standup special Equanimity and it’s right on time based on the current climate of the country. 45 and his fellow Republican cronies are currently swimming in pools of money after passing a large tax cut for the rich. It’s their first major legislative victory since Trump and his family slithered into the White House.

In the clip, Dave reflects on the dreaded 2016 Presidential Election that gave us Donald Trump and his experience voting in that election. He jokingly reveals that “poor whites are his least favorites” mainly because they vote against their interest all of the time. Dave points out when he looked into their faces he didn’t see any “deplorable people” instead he saw “angry faces, determined faces and they felt like decent folk”.

Could have fooled us.

Dave even points out that he even felt sorry for them because he knows the game and he knows that rich white people call poor white people trash because he made so much money the rich white people told him at a cocktail party.

Dave continues his voting story and tells the sold-out crowd that he continued to listen to the poor white voters say poor naive things like Donald Trump is going to fight for them. Dave then thinks to himself exactly what we all have been thinking about these poor, naive white voters. We’ll late Dave tell the story in the clip below cause it’s even funnier when he tells it and be sure to catch Equanimity on December, 31st.
